So I did the 'running bitcoin' thing with #Umbrel ☂️
Useful learning curve in setting up, downloading and verifying blockchain for myself, and the tangibility of having the node in my home and pointing my mobile wallets there, not depending on someone else's node accessed through a server somewhere.
Got there in the end but whole thing seemed a bit unstable.
Now feels like a big anticlimax...
Where to go next ❓
This question forces me to think what is my #bitcoin strategy.
This second article by Ulric Pattillo has my 'Berean Seal of Approval'. 👍
With the publication of 'Thank God For Bitcoin', there's really no excuse for ignorance. Christians should be stampeding into Bitcoin. Article like this will help.
I started noticing the God- complex with Oprah. The corporate responsibility schtick was also a big clue.
These billionaires have nothing left to achieve so they turned to playing God.
The thing is, God is Good.
They are NOT good.
Anytime someone is power is not good, it's a huge problem. And that's where we are today. Corrupted, evil leaders are in power and are consolidating that power to eradicate the US. We are no longer free.
Lord, have mercy on us all.

Commentary: The left doesn’t just want to censor you; it also wants to close your bank accounts
Sometimes you gotta poke the bear.
Putting on my tinfoil hat, what if Bitcoin was started to introduce the one world currency.
It’s fully traceable. Current “recovery” of recent ransom ware attacks demonstrate it does not offer the anonymity it promised. But, the public perception is it does.
So is it a big honeypot to attract us , the untrusting government haters.
I’m probably wrong but it seems logical to me.
Medical tyranny (centralization of medicine) will result in a backlash: decentralization of medicine.
We can already see it in response to unprecedented bans on prescriptions for certain medications for treatment of covid-19, via individuals working their way around the system to get prescription medicines directly.
With the wealth of knowledge available on the internet, medicine will forever be changed for the better as individuals start taking more responsibility for their own health.
"Know the true leader by his unquestionable commands"
Feels good to have #degoogled a significant chunk of my online life.
My other project was updating #Umbrel to 0.4.1 and starting to use Nextcloud instance alongside my Bitcoin node. Still experimental but like the idea of 1TB sovereign cloud storage, and dumping subscription services!
My company will make the following policy active on Sept 30th.

I read this notice, closed my laptop, and walked out the door. I got home and called my manager to state that if this policy stands then my last day is on Sept 30th.
